. florida and washington dc, president obama and governor romney faced each other in the third and final debate. many saw this as the defining moment for each of the candidate before americans make their decision on election day november 6th, next two weeks will be devoted to mobilizing voters in key battleground states, ohio in particular shaping up to be an election decider, although as cbs news poll this morning showed the president maintains an advantage there, governor romney is gaining, tonight in boca raton, florida the focus was on foreign policy, both candidate also pressed on their domestic policy talking points. >> governor romney i am glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat, because a few month ago when asked was is the biggest geo political face facing america you said russia. >> russia indicated is a geo political foe. >> excuse me, as the geo political foe and i said in the same paragraph i said and iran is the greatest national security threat we face. russia does continue to battle us in the u.n. time and time again, i have clear eyes on, this i am not going to
launching a full-scale all-out campaign push after debating mitt romney. starting tomorrow, the president begins a two-day six-state barn storm. he tried to build on the debate again, criticizing governor romney for moves to the middle. >> we've come up with a name for this condition. it's called romnesia. we had a severe outbreak last night. it was at least stage three romnesia. >> but the strategy last night, stay strong, sharp and relentless. the commander in chief brought a bayonet to a foreign policy knife fight. >> your strategy previously has been one that's been all over the map. i know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy. you mentioned the navy for example and we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets. the question is not a game of battleship where we're counting ships. it is what are our capables? >> those were cheap shots that he took at mitt romney last night. i think you should treat your opponent with some respect, especially if you're the president of the united states and he didn't. >> governor romney
and afghanistan. serious news tonight on afghanistan, as mitt romney committed without any qualification to the idea that troops should be withdrawn from afghanistan in 2014. this is a reversal for mitt romney, in terms of his previous stated conditions on that idea. he previously said i don't think you set hard and fast deadlines. that was to abc news on july 29th. i think the biggest mistake he, meaning president obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country i
are in the homestretch of the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney met to debate foreign policy at lynn university in boca raton florida, last night and when it was all over, romney's running mate, congressman paul ryan, picked a winner close to his heart. >> i think governor romney won this debate and you know why i think he won it? because americans, for a third time now got to see a man ready to become a great president. >> eliot: the polls suggest voters saw the debate a little differently. undecided voters in a cbs news poll favored president obama's performance by 30 points over mitt romney. registered voters in a cnn poll gave the president an 8-point lead over his rival and voters in 11 swing states gave mr. obama an 11-point debate margin over romney in a public policy poll. those swing state voters also favored the president by 6 points when they were asked who they planned to support. the big sur prices last night for much of the debate, mitt romney seemed more concerned with obscuring the differences
. chris: mitt romney's mind game is to call heavily the new change agent. and inviting voters to hop on the winning train. >> you're seeing this movement growing. you're seeing people come together to say we love america. we recognize we can do better. i came in and some of the folks here were holding signs, democrats for romney, all right? i love that. i love that. chris: well, the question is, is mitt romney really wenning or is this a psychological game in which he's getting the democrats to be demoralized while all this talk of him being ahead? >> beats me. usually you have a gut feeling about it. i have no gut feeling about this election. but i will say this. that calling -- that optimism and saying it's a big deal is more -- is more fundamentally american and more optimistic and more positive, i think, and so i would give romney slightly the upper hand on this message rather than saying you got to go out ask vote. chris: you may not like the things you are wut what happens if we lose the election seems to be the message. >> and that people like to go with a winner if he can pro
romney up close as he offers his vision of the future, and what he would do as president. but even more startling is the president's complete failure to put forth an agenda for the next four years. >> people want to know they have a strong, steady hand in the oval office and they don't want someone who is reckless. we all remember his "dukes of hazard" tour of international destinations over the summer. >> but tonight's session on foreign policy, which sounded weeks ago like a potential mismatch, an incumbent president responsible for the death of osama bin laden in the ring against a one-term governor with little foreign policy experience now looks like a fairer fight. the president's edge on who would make a better commander in chief has slipped from eight points a month ago to just three. he leads romney 44-41 on that issue in our new poll. overall, the president leads romney on who is best equipped to handle foreign policy by eight points. 46-38. but romney is viewed as a viable alternative. tonight's format will break down this way. moderator, cbs's bob schieffer divided the 90-deb
the election. both mitt romney and president obama are hitting the campaign trail with new urgency. romney has been riding a wave after the first debate bichlt all accounts, president obama got the edge in the second debate. last chance for two men to go nose to nose in a race that's now too close to call. dana bash joins us, also from boca raton, florida, the site of last night's face-off. how was this debate different from the previous two? >> reporter: i think it was a flip of what you just described about the first debate. president obama was incredibly aggressive, snarky at times. mitt romney almost it looked like he was biting his tongue, trying not to be like that. both men understood it was clear that foreign policy is not high on the minds of voters and really wanted to make it about leadership. mitt romney came trying to show leadership of commander in chief. president obama came to make sure that didn't happen. time and time again, comments dripped with sarcasm. >> the biggest gop political threat facing america you said russia, not al qaeda. you said rusha. 1980s are now calling to
romney appeared to walk back nearly every foreign policy position he's ever taken and instead, make nice with president obama. right out of the gate moderator bob schieffer teed up a question on perhaps the biggest vulnerability the handling of the attack in benghazi. instead of continuing the criticism romney has kept up since the first 24 hours of the incident he pivoted to mali. >> we see in libya an attack, apparently by i had think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead, our hearts and minds goes to them. mali has been taken over by al qae qaeda-type videos. >> the pattern would continue on nearly every major issue romney stood with the president. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda. would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time i supported his action there. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria. >> what you heard governor romney said

, florida, site of the third presidential debate in florida. romney war. when i hear mitt romney speak about foreign policy, it's always toughness. when i hear we've got to get tough, i hear war. surrounded as he is by the same people, i feel war presence is even stronger. and in iraq and afghanistan, do we now want another war and a more islamic country. the implication is that we can commit an all out act of war for actually using the word war. we can attack the nuclear sites and they say uncle and that's the end of it. they won't do anything and if only one or two big ones were left, we could still hit new york, an awful lot of people would be wiped out. consequences, understanding the consequences. that's what foreign policy is all about. war is not a policy. it's a declaration of failure. we have no idea what they plan to do and unleash on gaza, forcing others to knockout the rocket sites in both lands killing any number of civilians. and where would we be then? mr. romney's performance in foreign affairs from clumsy trip to europe where he managed to insult our hosts from the shoot fir

on the offensive. a more measured governor romney as we went into the initial moments last night. but the showdown moved on to pretty tense exchanges we haven't seen from the last couple of debates. >> we're talking about the middle east and how to help the middle east reject the kind of terrorism we're seeing and rising tide of tumult and confusion and attacking me is not an agenda. >> we have things called aircraft carriers where planes land land on them. ships that go under water and nuclear submarines. so the question is not, a game of battleship where we're counting ships. it is, what are our capabilities. >> you went to the middle east and you flew to egypt and to saudi arabia and to turkey and iraq. and, by the way, you skipped israel. our closest friend in the region but you went to the other nations. and by the way, they noticed that you skipped israel. >> a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest go owe political threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda, russia. 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. the cold war is over for 20 years. >> congrat

romney is making stops in the battleground states of nevada and iowa. senior national correspondent john roberts tells us what the candidates are telling their supporters about the final stretch. >> the final debate behind him, romney dropped my reference to foreign policy, going heavy on domestic issues. hammering the president for lacking a clear agenda for a second term. >> the president has been unable to find an agenda and to communicate an agenda and defend an agenda. that's a reason why we know he is out of ideas. and out of excuses. in november you will put him out of office. >> as he did in the primaries, romney trying to create air of inevitably, claiming he has momentum and president is fading. >> obama campaign is slipping and shrinking. our campaign is a growing movement across this country! the latest real clear politics average of polls has romney up less than a point nationally. toe's gapup will tracking shows a slight decline for romney but still at 50%. polls in all the battleground states are within the margin of error. >> for his part, the president on a day long blit
. president. >> thank you very much, bob, governor romney and to lynn university. you've now heard three debates, months of campaigning and way too many tv commercials. and now you've got a choice. you know, over the last four years we've made real progress digging our way out of policies that gave us two prolonged wars, record deficits and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and governor romney wants to take us back to those policies. foreign policy that's wrong and reckless, economic policies that won't create jobs, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to play by the same rules you do and i've got a different vision for america. i want to build on our strengths. and i put forward a plan to make sure we're bringing manufacturing jobs back to our shores, by rewarding companies and small businesses that are investing here, not overseas. i want to make sure we got the best education system in the world and we're retaining our workers for the jobs of tomorrow. i want to control our own energy by developing oil and natural gas b
security. and unlike mitt romney, i'm actually proud to talk about what's in it. and by the way the math in my plan adds up. >> eliot: despite the glossy new packaging the brochure offers little in terms of new policy. a fact the campaign openly admits. >> the pamphlet reflects the ideas that the president has advanced throughout this campaign but we wanted to codify it and put it in one place so that as voters who are making their final decisions contemplate the decisions and have a chance to look at the specific ideas the president is offering. >> eliot: that didn't stop the obama campaign from touting the campaign including ohio, new hampshire, virginia and of course florida. let's bring in former florida congressman alan grayson who is currently running to represent florida's newly-formed ninth congressional district. congressman, thank you as always for joining us. >> thank you. >> eliot: so how did last night's debate affect florida voters? it is still listed, florida that is, in a tossup category. alth
president obama, mitt romney tackling foreign policy in their final debate. getting in their parting shots, as well. >> in the 1980s are now cowing to ask for their foreign policy back. >> i'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> with exactly two weeks till election day, who has the edge now? we're holding the candidates to their statements and checking the facts, as well, and taking a look at most talked about moments. >> we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed. >> i'm a son of detroit. i was born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. >> complete analysis for us with ohio senator rob portman, ambassador nicolas burns and massachusetts senator john kerry. it's tuesday, october 23rd. and "starting point" begins right now. we're coming to you live from boca raton in florida. >>> good morning. welcome, everybody. we're coming to you from boca raton in florida. our "starting point" this morning, a more forceful president obama, a more measured mitt romn
out the vote. at mitt romney's own excited troops. the gush of tv ads inundating the swing states. both sides with cy war and romney forces call charge, we're winning, join us or be left behind. if you don't vote we could have bush versus gore all over again. the economy, stupid. friday the last jobs report before the election. last month, it gave the president a boost. will the october number matter more? i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "time" magazine's joe klein. the bbc's katty kay. cnbc's kelly evans. and "the washington post's" david ignatius. first up, we're staring down at the wind tunnel now but historic perfect political storm in the coming nine days of this campaign. and these closing days when we played out in mind games on both sides. the president saying he jist wants to hold on -- he just wants to hold on. >> what we have is a lead that we've maintained throughout this campaign. and we are going to just continue to drive home the message that there are two fundamentally different choices in this election. about where we take the country. chri
" this morning, a more forceful president obama, a more measured mitt romney. last night's foreign policy debate here in florida, right here, in fact, is in the books now. and when it was over, a cnn/orc poll of debate watchers favored the president over mr. romney, 48% to 40%. let's get right to senior congressional correspondent dana bash who was watching that debate. good morning. >> good morning. look, we know this entire election year debates have really mattered. but this one was a little bit tricky because it's about foreign policy. that's not high on the priority list for voters. so each candidate really tried to make it a test of leadership. especially the president. >> reporter: mitt romney came wanting voters to see him as commander in chief. the commander in chief came determined to make sure that didn't happen. >> i know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy. but, every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong. >> reporter: time and time again the president's harsh criticism dripped with sarcasm. >> a few months ago when you were asked what's the
: i don't think it was a coincidence that during the foreign policy debate, mitt romney kept bringing it back to the economy. most people turning in were not going to be paying that close attention to some of the foreign policy issues, and i don't think many \ voters go to the polls to vote based on what our decisions will be with china or cuba, for that matter. but they do vote with their pocketbooks. statewide unemployment in florida is 8.7%, but it is much higher in various pockets of florida. in some counties, as high as 12% unemployment. as we all know, that does not talk about the under-employed. the economy is still struggling in florida. we have signs of it getting better, but i heard a story that foreclosures in the state are the highest in the nation. there's a lot of economic pressure in the state. people are feeling the pain, and whoever sells the economic message best is going to do well in this state. i should add that the republican party in the state is very strong. >> they not only have the governor's office and three cabinet offices, but the state democratic party is
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev
showdown in florida. president obama and governor romney going head to head in the final presidential debate. jenna: now the final sprint to the election is on with just two weeks to go. who won, is one of the questions. and will it be enough to change any minds? we're going to break down the style and substance of the debate with our own fair and balanced conversation, aren't we, jon? and is one of our greatest threats is a nuclear-armed iran. did the candidates lay out plans for making sure that that nation, that same nation that calls us the great satan, never has those types of weapons? we're going to talk more about that. >>> and also a massive manhunt is underway as a gunman terrorizes drivers in one state. it's all "happening now." ♪ jenna: well, the presidential candidates clashing over foreign policy in the third and final debate last night. now the countdown is on til election day, just two weeks away. no more debates but certainly a lot ahead. we're glad you're with us, everybody, jenna lee. jon: and early voting underway. i'm jon scott. we heard from the candidates on li
university in boca raton, florida, where in two hours president obama and mitt romney will square off in their third and final debate. two weeks until election day, and polls showing continued romney momentum. could this be obama's last stand? the terrorist attack on our embassy in benghazi will be one of the phonus points of the debate. joining us now from the debate site, ace reporter cnbc contributor robert costa, "national review." robert, what is team romney telling you about tonight? >> reporter: team romney is very optimistic about tonight, but they know it will be a break-even debate. this is president obama's best subject, foreign policy, romney is a governor and businessman, not his wheelhouse, but he's been well prepared for this debate and expect him to come out firing at the president's record, especially on libya. >> okay. let's pursue that. is he going to go right after benghazigate, go right after it picking up where he left off in the last debate? >> well, as you remember, larry, the romney campaign feels during the town hall romney didn't have a great answer on libya
'm not going to predict a recession next year. stuart: okay, plow horse continues under obama. 2%. yet, romney wins. >> or worse, and romney wins and we get tax reform, lower tax rates and fewer deductions and then what? >> i think if we can cut government spending, that's one of the key things, even tax reform's not enough. we have to cut the size of government. i think romney and ryan will do that and tax reform, we can accelerate and we can be growing at 4% within a couple of years. the unemployment rate will be coming down. one key thing here, i believe there's 3 to 5% of gdp that's being held back right now, businesses are holding back because of uncertainty. if romney wins, that gets unleashed and i think the economy accelerates. >> all right, brian, we hear you loud and clear with 11 days to go. and tech stocks, we're 11 days away from the election, mitt romney has seized the moments tum, looking at the polls. are we reading that right? has he indeed seized the momentum. is the president really on the ropes? we're following that, too. a triple digit loss for the dow, it looked that way
to the polls, they're going to make the right decision. it will be mitt romney. thank you. host: moving on to elkhart, indiana. dale is on our line for independents. dale is optimistic about the economy. go ahead, dale. caller: hi. how are you? host: i'm doing fine. you say that you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: well, our economy is so big, it's just going to keep going no matter what, even though we came close to falling off of a cliff, we still rebounded no matter the negative or positive attitudes that were out there. we continue to still grow. we need to have more percentage growth. but i just feel it's just going to keep going no matter what our politicians or our big business or anybody does. host: hey, dale, what kind of business are you in? what do you do for a living? caller: i'm a quality technician for aerospace components. host: and based on the things that you've seen and what's happening in your aerospace industry, does that also help fuel your optimism for the economy? caller: yeah, we added quite a few, probably 30%, 40% of people in the last two
romney wasted no time today getting back out on the campaign trail. with election day now only two weeks away, the candidates are devoting every waking minute to revving up the base and courting any remaining undecided voters in a handful of critical swing states. for mr. obama this morning, that meant the campaign rally before an enthusiastic crowd in delray beach, florida, not far from the the site of last night's face-off. >> you guys really are fired up. ifill: picking up where he left off last night he fold voters that governor romney is not a reliable choice. >> we're accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from like four years ago. we are not accustomed to seeing politicians change their position from four days ago. i mean,... and we joke about romnesia but you know what? this is is important. this is about trust. there is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. >> ifill: doubling down on that argument vice president joe biden amplified the democrats' message at the university of toledo in ohio before meeting up with the president later in the
